Update: In an email from a representative of Huawei Global, Huawei has no plans to launch HarmonyOS on mobile phones outside of China
Huawei officially released its own operating system, HarmonyOS (called HongmengOS in China) back in 2019. However, three years down the line, this system is yet to fully launch globally. All Huawei’s mobile phones since 2020 come with this new system. But these phones almost never make their way into the global market. All that is now over as Huawei is set to have a full launch of the HarmonyOS system globally on May 9. According to Huawei Mobile’s global webpage, the company will launch the Huawei P60 series globally on May 9, 2023. The Huawei P60 series was released in China in March this year.
This new report is coming after the official launch of Huawei nova 11i with HarmonyOS in South Africa. However, there is a catch with regard to the system that the global Huawei P60 series will use. The official report reveals that the global version of the Huawei P60 series will come with EMUI 13 system based on HarmonyOS.
EMUI 13 based on HaromyOS
Huawei claims that the EMUI system is now based on HarmonyOS. This system comes with Harmony features including sliding gestures, large folders, widget stacking, hyperterminal, hyperstorage, cross – screen sharing, etc. This most likely means that the global version system will not have the full features of the Chinese version.
EMUI 13 was released in October last year. New features mainly include icon swipe-up gestures (similar to Hongmeng service cards), large folders, allowing widgets to stack, super terminal, super storage, cross-screen sharing, etc. The overall experience is basically the same as HarmonyOS 3.
It is understood that after the Chinese release of the Huawei P60 series, He Gang, chief operating officer of Huawei’s terminal business, said that it took a year and a half from the P50 to the Mate 50. But after the official release of the Mate 50 in September last year, within half a year, Huawei made a breakthrough. There are many difficulties, constraints, sanctions, and challenges. The release of the Huawei P60 this spring means that the company has returned to the rhythm of normal product delivery.
Regarding the competition for high – end mobile phones, He Gang bluntly said that Huawei may be the only one that can compete with Apple in this field. Therefore, in the high-end market, Huawei should still be the strongest.

Huawei P60 series specs
The Huawei P60 series is a new lineup of mobile phones that was launched in March 2023. The series includes three models: the Huawei P60, Huawei P60 Pro and the Huawei P60 Art. All three models are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. The P60 and P60 Pro share a variable aperture main camera, 50W wireless charging, and a 4,815mAh battery. The P60 Pro boasts a triple rear camera system, with a 48MP “super-sensing” camera as the primary shooter. This camera has variable aperture support (f/1.4 to f/4.0) as well as an RYYB.
The standard P60 shares a few features with the P60 Pro, such as the screen, the main camera, ultrawide rear camera, battery, wireless charging, and the mother-of-pearl rear cover. However, there are a few design differences between both models.
In terms of design, the Huawei P60 series is sleek and stylish. The phones have a unique Pearl Texture Design that makes them shine like a timeless ornament and gives a distinct pattern on each phone. The P60 Pro also has a “feather sand glass” back for some of its color variants. The phones have a large 6.67″ 120Hz 1220×2700 LTPO AMOLED display, which is a high-quality display that should provide a great viewing experience.
The Huawei P60 series is known for its serious camera tech. The P series has always excelled when it comes to photography, and it looks like the P60 Pro is no different. The new phone brings a triple rear camera system, with a 48MP “super-sensing” camera as your primary shooter. This camera boasts variable aperture support (f/1.4 to f/4.0) as well as an RYYB. The P60 and P60 Pro share a variable aperture main camera, which is a feature that is not commonly found in smartphones. This camera can adjust its aperture from f/1.4 to f/4.0, depending on the lighting conditions. This allows for better low-light performance and more creative control over depth of field.
Battery and Charging
The Huawei P60 series also features 50W wireless charging, which is one of the fastest wireless charging speeds available in smartphones. This means that you can charge your phone quickly and conveniently without having to plug it in. The P60 series also has a 4,815mAh battery, which is a large battery that should provide plenty of battery life.
The Huawei P60 series runs on HarmonyOS 3.1, which is Huawei’s proprietary operating system. HarmonyOS 3.1 is a new operating system that Huawei has developed to replace Android. It is designed to work across a range of devices, including smartphones, tablets, wearables, and smart home devices. HarmonyOS 3.1 is based on a microkernel architecture, which makes it more secure and efficient than traditional operating systems. It also supports a range of features, including multi-device collaboration, distributed file systems, and virtual peripherals. The use of HarmonyOS 3.1 operating system is a bold move by Huawei.
Huawei P60 series is a new lineup of mobile phones that appears to be doing quite well in China. After the release of the Huawei nova 11i in South Africa, Huawei is taking a bold step to release the Huawei P60 series globally. However, this device will not use Harmony system like the models in China. It will only add some Harmony features. At the moment, there is no info on the markets that the Huawei P60 series will launch.
